Harris Corporation And VMware To Deliver Trusted Enterprise Cloud To Federal And Commercial Customers

LAS VEGAS and MELBOURNE, Fla., Aug. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Harris Trusted Enterprise Cloud engineered to meet security, compliance and availability standards of the U.S. Federal Government including NIST 800-53 High, FISMA, and S-CAP
  • vCloud® Powered recognition from VMware positions Harris as a leading cloud provider and cyber integrator for federal and commercial customers
  • Emerging federal standards encourage cloud adoption by U.S. government and industry

Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS), an international communications and information technology company, and VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, have announced that Harris' Trusted Enterprise Cloud is available as a VMware vCloud® Powered service offering for federal and enterprise customers.  Recognition as vCloud Powered is based on Harris' use of VMware virtualization software combined with Harris' innovative engineering, unique cyber integration capabilities, and patented trust enablement technologies.

Harris Trusted Enterprise Cloud is engineered to meet or exceed the cloud computing requirements of the U.S. Federal Government(1), including NIST 800-53 High, FISMA, and S-CAP.  A key differentiator for the service is Harris' patented trust enablement technology, which includes the Global Trust Repository and the Enterprise Trust Server.  These technologies provide pervasive monitoring, continuous assurance, and supply chain attestation that the software and configurations in the cloud environment are deployed and operating according to specification and have not been compromised.  Trusted Enterprise Cloud is based on the latest technology from VMware, including VMware vSphere® and vCloud Director™, which enable Harris to deliver a robust, flexible, and secure cloud service for the most demanding industries.

"Federal guidelines including the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the recent TechAmerica CLOUD(2) report are critical to the adoption of cloud computing and are fundamental to Harris' Trusted Enterprise Cloud service," said Wyatt Starnes, vice president, Advanced Concepts, Harris Cyber Integrated Solutions, and CLOUD(2) commissioner.  "VMware shares our commitment to delivering services that meet or exceed these federal guidelines and is a key technology partner for our cyber integrated solutions."

"Cloud computing is a top priority for CIOs of commercial and government IT organizations," said Aileen Black, vice president, public sector, VMware.  "With VMware's cloud infrastructure platform as its foundation, Harris' Trusted Enterprise Cloud meets the demanding technology standards of the U.S. government so that organizations from large enterprises to the public sector can leverage the increased operational agility, automation and simplicity of the cloud computing model from a strategic business partner."

Harris is featured at VMworld 2011 in Las Vegas, which is attracting more than 20,000 attendees to learn about virtualization, cloud computing, and the transformation to IT-as-a-service.  This year's VMworld theme, "Your Cloud, Own it," emphasizes the powerful role attendees play in designing clouds that meet the specific business needs and demands of their companies.  With its Trusted Enterprise Cloud and its leading position as a cyber integrator, Harris works closely with government and commercial organizations to help them move their IT and business operations to the cloud – whether they are private, hybrid, or public.
